Dutch artist Jasper de Beijer uses sculpture-based photography to inspire new ideas about the past. The underlying theme in his work is the impact that the media’s representation has on our collective understanding of history. de Beijer aims to deconstruct the media by staging historical events as 3D models, photographing them and then distorting them in his studio- the result of which looks stunningly more like drawings or illustrations than actual photographs. Each image taken is of a physical set made of drawn material and constructed bodies, environments, and ephemera.
